When I was 25 years old, I was in a band. It was a dinky little coffeeshop folk-rock band, but MAN it was fun. I had just enough skill to compose but not enough to accompany myself, so I made embarrassing recordings of half-formed songs, brought them to my bandmates, and we workshopped them together. You know how being the lead singer of a band looks really fun? Well, it IS. Seriously. Keep reading »

Twelve previously unheard Amy Winehouse songs will be released on December 5 in an album where a portion of the proceeds will go to a charity set up in the singer’s memory. Amy recorded the 12 songs, which have been tweaked by her longtime collaborators (including Mark Ronson), at various points during her career. The songs will include favorites she performed in concert, like “Valerie” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”; “Body & Soul,” which she recorded with Tony Bennett before her death; and a brand new song called “Between The Cheats.” Amy’s dad Mitch Winehouse called the album “incredibly beautiful” and a “fitting tribute.” Aww, now my eyes are watering.

Britney Spears’ “Criminal” music video is out and if “Mob Wives” hasn’t locked it down as its theme song, they should. The song itself is typical Britney-meh and the video is Britney-awful. There’s not one but two incidents where the cameras linger on her official perfume. (Product placement, y’all!) Brit-Brit and her real-life boo Jason Trawick play passionate bandits who meet when he saves her from being roughed up on the street by a douchey date. A great message for the kiddies mob wives whose real lives are actually like this: it’s okay to trade one criminal for another — just trade up!  [Just Jared] Keep reading »

“Dedication To My Ex” By Lloyd Is The Women’s Studies Dept Worst Nightmare (NSFW)

Watch Video

What is there to say about “Dedication To My Ex,” the catchy pop song by Lloyd all about his ex’s vagina? I mean, really, what should I say?  I’ve been sitting here typing and deleting and typing again and … I just don’t know what to say. “Dedication To My Ex” is a super-catchy pop song that could have been written and performed by Hanson, if only the lyrics were not all about an unnamed ex and how her “p**sy done changed.” Keep reading »
